Onstad’s recent paintings are a reflection of her travels in the greater world as well as her daily trips to her North Portland studio. The wildly colorful and dramatic landscape of Nicaragua serves a backdrop for her exploration of complex emotions and her relationship to her creative process. Using many layers of color and form, Onstad hopes to evoke feeling and spark memories in her viewers – connecting them to their own exotic and everyday journeys.
